• The True Picture Of The Yankees 2013 Season, To Date

    Posted by on July 9th, 2013 · Comments (7)

    In their first 14 games of the 2013 season, the Yankees went 8-6.

    In their next 10 games, from April 19th through April 28, the Yankees went 7-3. This included 6 wins against the Toronto Blue Jays – who were terrible at the start of the season. (The Jays started out 2013 with a record of 10-21 in their first 31 games.)

    Since April 29th, the Yankees record has been 33-32 (including last night’s loss to the Royals).

    Sans that one ten game period where New York took advantage of a bad Toronto team, the Yankees have been about a .500-team this season. In fact, their Pythagorean Winning Percentage, to date, is 44-45.

    At this rate, it’s looking like the Yankees will probably not win more than 87 games this season. Do you agree?

      Less than 85 wins wouldn’t be surprising.

      Worst payroll dollar per win ratio in the history of baseball?

      I’m sticking to my 85-win prediction that I made at the start of the season. The present line-up would not reach that total, but a couple of the injured players should return and help.

      How so – if they finish 4th in the East?

      It’ll be close with last year’s Red Sox. But it’s possible this Yankee team might do it.

      The last time the Yanks time the Yanks scored 1 run or less in three straight game was games 21-23 of the 2005 season. They lost all three of those games.

      ===================

      Of course, if you include the post-season, then the last time would be the last 3 games of the ALCS vs. the Tigers last year. They lost all three…

      …oh, forget it.
